It's a hiring spree at one local company.

With more than 500 employees at their Lincoln call center, Verizon Wireless is seeking even more help.  
 
 "Right now, we're hiring approximately 12 individuals per month," Associate Customer Service Director Jeff DeBrie said.

The technology giant is looking to add more than 100 customer service representatives throughout the year. It's a role that includes answering phones and helping customers with questions or concerns.

All in what employees call a positive workplace with an upbeat culture.
 
"We like to have fun. We like to be energetic," Heather DeGroot said.

"We stand behind our employees and our business and what we do each day. I can't imagine being anywhere else."

If you need a break from the phone, there's an on-site fitness center plus a full service cafeteria.

There's also a 401(k) program and tuition assistance. The company says it's a great place to start or further a career in an industry that's constantly evolving.

"Everything is always changing," DeBrie said.

"We don't think of ourselves as a cell phone company anymore, we're more of a technology company. With the fast pace things are moving, it's not only a fun environment, but you get to see things change and technology grow all the time."

Verizon's Lincoln call center opened its doors in 2007. They're hopeful that one day the call center will eventually employ up to 800 people.
